Etowah River Bridge, Rome
Central of Georgia Railway

The Central of Georgia Railway crossed the Etowah River on this through-truss steel bridge. It is now known as the Bob Moore Bridge, dedicated to the memory of Rome native and bicycle shop owner Robert L. (Bob) Moore, Sr.

The bridge is part of the city's Silver Creek Trail which begins at the end of East 4th Street.

A few yards upstream are the piers from the Southern Railway bridge that once stood here (above).

This 1915 Sanborn map shows both bridges.
